Dancing with nappy hair forbidden?

The Commission for equal rights in Amsterdam, decided that a student from the Koninklijk Conservatorium in Den Haag, is permitted to dance with natural hair. Apparently she was banned from classes because the rule of the school was that you can only dance if you're hair is straight and in a knot.
Because she didnt want to straighten her hair she made braids and than put it in a knot. The school found that not enough and banned her anyways. That the hairtexture had to be straight.
I am surprised that in this day in age, we still have to deal with issues like this.
Apparently having your hair like in the following picture is still not good enough in some circles.
